Power Stars are bright artifacts with power that debut in Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted Dreams. Power Stars are similar to regular Stars, except that Power Stars grant energy to star-powered hub areas.
In Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted Dreams, Luigi's Mansion 5: Curse of the Mansion, and Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!, a Power Star's main colour is yellow. If the player plays the level again, the Power Star of that level will become a gray transparent Power Star, which does not get added to the Star count, though it can still be collected.
Luigi's Mansion 4: Haunted DreamsEdit
This game has three different types of Power Stars: the regular Power Stars are the normal gold ones. The second variety are the five Blue Stars, which grant access to the Blue Garden when collected. Lastly, there are Grand Stars. Grand Stars are the most powerful Power Stars in the whole game. These are used to restore the Mushroom Museum and to create more paths to more dormitory rooms.

Power Stars serve the same role like they did in the prequel, except that in this game, they grant power to the Ship of Mansions. There is a total of 302 Power Stars. There is now a new kind of Power Star called Orange Stars. There are five and they grant the player access to the Haunted Hexagons, much like the fact that Blue Stars grant the player access to the Blue Garden from the previous game. There are 135 Power Stars, 150 Blue Stars, 12 Grand Stars, and 5 Orange Stars.
Luigi's Mansion 6: U Are Doomed!!Edit
